After six weeks of hard work, they are putting on the last minute touches. The robot is wirelessly controlled. It has a vacuum that holds a soccer ball and an arm to lift the robot.

“We clean the Ralph Englestad Arena which is a good source of income for our team and that counts to the hours we have and most of us are well above 100 hours or 200."”

After the competition, the students will go to Atlanta to compete against the best robots in the world.
